Miniclick Response Exhibition

Earlier this month I joined Miniclick for their first Response Exhibition, an event devised with Hastings based Lucy Bell Gallery. Almost 100 photographers submitted a total of more than 700 images, in advance and in person. The images were projected during a two-day event at the Phoenix Brighton, and discussed by photographers, the public, Lucy Bell, Jim Stephenson from Miniclick, Brighton Photo Fringe emerging curators Lulu Evans and Kayung Lai, and guests including myself, Eleanor MacNair, Rachel Segal Hamilton and Laura Pannack.

As images from each submitted portfolio were discussed, chosen images were printed, and added to an every changing wall, in which pairings and themes were found and continuously developed. At the end of the event ten photographers work was chosen for an exhibition at Lucy Bell Gallery which is now on show and continues until 23rd November.

Read more about the Response Exhibition on the Miniclick blog, where you can also view a slide show of work by the selected photographers Jocelyn Allen, Christopher Bethell, Richard Cutler, Peter Gates, Sam Laughlin, Margaret Mitchell, Nikosono, Kajal Nisha Patel, Kristina Salgvik and Amelia Shepherd. It was wonderful to be involved with this exciting and highly collaborative event; an experiment in mass curating which I hope Miniclick repeats in the future.
